I am going to use my own discretion and close this. Ideally we want constructive and appropriate criticism on this forum base, something most of the replies have not been. And I am sure the OP wanted that rather than some of the harassment he has received both on the forum base and off.
I want this to be fair for everyone regardless of the circumstances. Sadly some people may not be able to see that.
With that said though, its disappointing the majority of replies here have been removed by our moderation team (vols included) even though they all have been correctly removed. No one has done anything wrong here - and worked within the tools/rules they have been instructed to do so.
The rules are not here to stifle conversations but to try and improve them, something that's not really worked in this case so we will have an internal discussion about moderation practices in the future, nothing may change though as we discuss it.
Threads like this are difficult to get the right balance, and with that said I think the moderation team have done overall a good job.
Any further questions, feel free to reach out to me.
